2005 Acura RSX Type-S 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


I've had this car for nearly a month now and still get a childish grin everytime I get behind the wheel. Everything in this car is seemless, from the interior ergonomics to the powertrain. With gas prices being what they are now, it's nice to see 30+ miles to the gallon on the highway. The regeared 6-speed tranny and the 10 extra horsepower make for a very spirited ride. I've looked down at the speedo more than once and found myself going 90mph, so definitely use the cruise control whenever possible. My only complaint with this car at all is the styling. Acura could definitely go a little more aggressive in that department. Nothing a few aftermarket body parts wont fix. Buy it.

Best Features

Defintely pleased with the interior. This is definitely a drivers car, with all the essential controls placed right at your fingertips. The short throw 6- speed is a dream, shifts are smooth and easy. The seats are supple and supportive, and the use of titanium accents in the headrests is sweet.

Worst Features

Other than the afformentioned styling concerns, there isnt alot to complain about. A few minor things for the boys at Acura... A one touch moonroof would be nice. Oh, for those of you living up north, the lack of a heated seat option will be a bit aggravating at best. Other than that, no complaints.
